Report: Catholicism Growing throughout World (except Europe)

"A Vatican census released ahead of World Mission Day reveals growing numbers of Catholics in what Pope Francis often refers to as 'the global peripheries,' even as the number of believers continues to diminish in Europe.

"The number of Catholics in the world grew by more than 15 million from 2018 to 2019, according to a census by the Vatican news agency Fides published on Thursday (Oct. 21). 'The increase applies to all continents, except Europe,' which saw the number of Catholic faithful decrease by almost 300,000, the survey found."

A recent National Catholic Reporter article reported on this Fides report..
